Makeup: Quick Fixes from Makeup Artist Stacey Tan

Ask the Expert.
We asked SWELL Hair/Makeup artist, Stacey Tan for a few hair + makeup tips for busy days…

Stacey’s 5-Minute Fixes:
Jumping out of bed and getting ready on the fly happens a lot in the Summer, and you gotta have your go-to routine down!

1. If my hair is playing nice, I will add some sea salt spray, scrunch a bit, then use a
curling iron on the frontal pieces to frame the face. (I like to wrap curl the front pieces on
a 1 1/4 inch curling iron, make sure to pull the curl out to make it looser.)

2. Hair Lifesaver, The “Top Knot” : If your hair isn’t in the ideal state to be worn down, pull
out a few “baby hairs” around the face, and viola!

3. The most important part of my makeup routine is the foundation. In a hurry, I’ll apply a
thin layer with a Beauty Blender, spot cover with MAC heavy concealer and blend it out.
Then I’ll apply powder to seal it.

4. Next would be a sweep of bronzer on the temples of the forehead, below cheekbones,
and underneath the chin. Add dash of blush on the apples of cheeks.

5. Fill in brows with Anastasia brow powder in medium ash brown, Curl lashes and add 3
coats of mascara . Spray MAC Fix +.. and done!

theSWELLlife FItness Tip from SWELL Model, Emily.


In need of some fitness inspiration? We asked SWELL model, Emily to share her fitspo…
Favorite inspirational quote: “You only regret the workout you don’t have.”
No matter how much you don’t want to have a workout, it’s true; the best part of it is when it’s done, then you are so happy you made the effort.

I think working out is easiest done when you’re having fun too; whether it’s swimming, or playing volleyball, or kicking a soccer ball around. Just keeping your heart rate up is the goal!
There’s always a time and place for the gym, but it’s so much more enjoyable when you can get exercise and have fun too.
